How will the curbside drop off work?

  • BELLEVUE: come to the main entrance on NE 20th (not the Tune shop door). We will have signs to help with the flow of customers/cars.
  • Staff will be wearing masks.
  • Customers also need to wear a mask.
  • Limit (4) items per family for free wax.
  • Staff will check in your equipment and give you a claim ticket.
  • Free Wax: we may be able to do that while you wait in your car. If not, staff will give you a claim ticket. Your ticket will include a pick up date. After you get your equipment home store in a cool, dry place. Consider a ski or snowboard bag. Next season you can bring back your skis and snowboards so we scrape it off for free before you head to the mountains. Scraping can also be done at home.
  • Tune Deals: we can help determine which tune your equipment needs. Please pay at the time of drop off. Credit card is best. You will receive a claim ticket with pick up date.
  • Staff will be sanitizing equipment to keep everyone safe.

How does the Free Wax work?

  • The base of your skis and snowboards is porous so to maintaining that surface during storage is important. We iron on a layer quality Swix® storage wax.
  • This cleans and protects your base during storage.
  • Come back next season and we’ll scrape it off for free. 
  • Sometimes we see equipment with damage that needs more attention than the storage wax. That’s why we offer tune deals during this event.
  • Your gear deserves some TLC.
  • LIMIT 4 items per family for free wax, please.


If weather and traffic flow allow, we can apply the FREE wax to your skis/snowboard while you wait in your car. Drop off may be necessary.

Customers will need to wear masks. Please help us follow safety guidelines during this time.
